Story



Saurabh Pendurkar is my brother. He is lying senseless in a Sion hospital bed for five days now. He has been in a local train accident that has broken his skull to pieces, damaged his lungs and rendered countless cuts and bruises on his body. 

Saurabh would board from Bandra station and travel to Malad, where he works for First Source call center. Often the seats would be full and he stood by the open door, making room for others to crowd into the coach past him and holding onto the rail to keep his place so the shoves and pushes don’t hurl him off the train. When a sudden hard jolt from unsuspecting co-passengers hit him, he lost his grip on the handrail and went flying off the speeding train and landed on the tracks. Passengers came rushing to Saurabh’s crumpled body; he was bleeding and had lost consciousness. This happened on 23rd February and has changed our world completely. We are not only full of shock but also worried to the point of sickness as to how we will get him the treatment he needs and deserves. 



On the day of the accident, a group of Good Samaritans took Saurabh to Cooper Hospital in Juhu. There was no neurosurgeon at Cooper, and his family moved him to Nanavati Hospital, Vile Parle, where doctors examined him and gave a verdict. He has gone into a coma and will need to receive intensive care for an indefinite period. His skull has fractured into pieces, his lungs are tired and infected so his breathing has become laboured, and there are too many abrasions on his body to count. He is breathing under a ventilator. He is covered with tubes to help him eat and drink and get the reviving drugs he needs. He will need a tracheostomy, eye surgery, and corrective surgeries to reconstruct his face.

 

We have again moved him to a Sion hospital where charges for an ICU bed are somewhat lower. We are in a position that we have to count every penny, especially because our father has retired and has a very small income, and we are a larger than average family of five. We do not have much in savings, and anxiety over Saurabh’s health clubbed with worry over how his treatment will be funded has meant sleepless nights, long and tiring brainstorming sessions, fatigue and exhaustion from stress. We have pooled all our savings and have asked for help from close friends and relatives already, but we are still nowhere close to raising the INR 25 lakhs needed for Saurabh’s treatment. 


This Impact Guru medical crowdfunding campaign is our last, desperate hope at gathering enough funds to pay for the months of Saurabh’s care that stretch out ahead. We are in dire need of every rupee that you can spare.


Each donation can mean the difference between Saurabh recovering quickly and his present helpless state. We are eager to have not just your contributions but also your blessings and good wishes. 

Help my brother by sharing our fundraiser. Stand with us in this bleak hour.

Dear well-wishers,




Thanks for the consistent support in coming this far with me. Saurabh has now been discharged and home. He still requires further treatment in the coming weeks.




He has to undergo surgeries to fix his injured bones as you can see in the CT Scan reports.

I'm striving to do everything possible to ensure there are no financial hurdles to take up his surgery. I hope you all can support me with this in any way possible.



Doctors have confirmed for surgeries over the next couple of weeks.

Dear one and all,


There is nothing more hopeful than seeing so many people come together when someone is in need. My gratitude and good wishes goes out to each one who've made me come this far with my campaign.


As for Saurabh's condition, he is currently out of ventilator and is in the ICU. He has a swelling on his forehead, and is under constant observation for the next 2-3 days before the doctors make further decision on required surgeries etc
